If you follow me on Instagram, then you'd know that the bulk of my posts consists of landscape/urban landscape photography, with pretty much no wedding work whatsoever. It's always a surprise when a client reaches out to me for portraits, event coverage, or anything outside of commercial work after having only viewed my Instagram feed, but it's also quite flattering nonetheless. Olivia had been a long time fan of my Instagram work prior to reaching out via e-mail, and after chatting for a while, it turned out that we already shared some mutual friends! It's situations like these that remind me of how grateful I am for the platform that Instagram provides creatives with to network to the best of our abilities -- rather than just solely focusing on likes or comments from followers. For me, it has been a wonderful journey building a social media presence in the San Francisco Bay Area.
While SF Bay Area winters are often unpredictable, we were blessed with beautiful weather the entire day at none other than the Marin Headlands Center for the Arts. Every detail from their wedding was well-thought out, from the rustic design of the venue to the vintage-styled decorations. This made for a truly intimate atmosphere, feeling as if their wedding took place in an off-the-grid, secluded area. All in all, Olivia and Scott's special day was a blast to photograph, my last wedding of 2017!
